About Jindal Society of International Law

JSIL is a student-led initiative at O.P. Jindal Global University, under the aegis of the Centre for the Study of United Nations, and guidance of Faculty Coordinator Professor (Dr.) Vesselin Popovski.

Founded in 2020, this Society is an initiative to provide a platform to young international law enthusiasts. The Society is supported and guided by doyens in the field of International Law, such as Dr. Anne Peters, Mr. John Burgess, and more.

Since November 2020, the society has aimed to foster meaningful conversations in the realm of international law and play the role of a facilitator for passionate and driven students. Below are some noteworthy links:

About International Agora

International Agora is an extension of JSIL’s efforts towards fostering meaningful conversation. This writing platform aims to further the vision of society by promoting inclusive discourse on various subject matters within the field of international law.

The aim is to create a platform where everyone who is interested in International law can participate, discuss and further promote this field of study. Having been operational for 6+ months now, we wish to further expand this initiative and venture into different fields of study within International Law.

With new ventures into Space Law and Artificial Intelligence in the making, we are also looking to launch verticals on commercial international law as well as on alternate dispute resolution and international law.

For additional information please visit the website. Please also find below further details about each of the upcoming vertical and the positions available.

International Dispute Settlement Mechanism

The aim of International Dispute Settlement Mechanisms is to provide resolution of an international platform. It usually involves a neutral third party (institutions or individuals) to bring out a workable settlement between parties in a peaceful manner, such as the International Centre for Dispute Resolution. Over the years, through the evolution of treaty laws, various doctrines such as non-exhaustion have been cemented.

Thus, if parties do not abide by signed treaties, it results in a growing need for having dispute mechanisms in place. The purpose of this vertical is to engage in more research and bring to the attention of students, the interesting work that is coming up in this area.

Given the deficit in information, this platform seeks to educate and provide innovative solutions. It is a space for interested individuals to congregate, deliberate and discuss and come up with new solutions for the new problems.

International Commercial Law

The International Commercial Law Vertical aims at furthering the vision of a global business world.

This is a platform that would help students engage with topics in the business field to develop their commercial awareness acumen.

In this pursuit, the vertical will have two broad publications: Short Articles and Research Articles. Both these categories would be dealing with different aspects in the field. The former would engage more with current affairs, while the latter will dive into the nuances of various theoretical concepts in International Commercial Law.
